“Chuck” is coming back soon! CHUCK!!!

If you know me, then you know I love the TV show “Chuck”.  I didn’t watch much TV last season, but I sure as hell didn’t miss an episode of “Chuck”.  Funny, action-oriented, clever, geeky, and a beautiful Australian blond.  That’s a recipe for awesome. The good news is that the season premiere of “Chuck” […]


DragonCon Pictures Now Online

Hey gang – Over 400 of my DragonCon 2008 pictures are now online!  You can view them on my Flickr account, “Once Upon a Geek”, in the set labeled “DragonCon 2008″.  Or simply visit the site by clicking here.  You can download these to your computer in a variety of sizes; most go as big as 1280×960.   Additionally, you can […]


I Survived DragonCon

The good news is that I survived DragonCon.  The bad news is that I’m having trouble re-acclimatizing to regular life.  After being completely immersed in geekdom for four straight days, it’s a little hard to suddenly be transported from the wild to “civilized” society. I had a fantastic time!  This was definitely one of the […]


Big Book Overload

I went to the comic shop on Monday to pick up the past two weeks worth of stuff.  I was pretty shocked to find so many big books waiting for me.  I knew I had ordered them, but for all of these to come in within such a short period of time – Yikes!  When […]


“Runners” comic book

I recently read the trade paperback of Sean Wang’s “Runners”. Wow, this was a great sci-fi comic! The story chronicles the misadventures of reluctant smuggler Roka Nostaco and his ragtag alien crew as they struggle to complete hazardous runs through outlaw space and against all odds. I agree completely with James Mishler’s review from Comic […]


Novels I’ve Been Reading

A few weeks back I wrote a blog post on a book I was reading, “Indiana Jones and the Seven Veils”.  It was an older book that was published back in 1991, but I read it to tide me over until I got around to seeing “Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull”.  Well, I finished this book and […]


“Chuck” Comic Book and Hellboy Commercials!

Other than the Doctor Who dynasty of shows, I don’t watch much television.  However, there is one new show that I have totally fallen for in the past year… “Chuck” on NBC.  The show is about a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government’s most vital secret. With the government’s […]


Indiana Jones Adventures… in stores now!

A while back, I wrote a blog post about the upcoming Indiana Jones comic digest.  Well… it came out this past Wednesday.  Now go buy it!


Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of Shag’s Review

I finally saw “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. I liked it. Yup, I’m one of the few geeks I know that actually enjoyed the movie. Now, I have to admit that I was probably not impartial going in. I’d read quite a bit of spoilers, so I was much better prepared […]


Indiana Jones and the Paper Chase

I just started reading “Indiana Jones and the Seven Veils“, a novel by Rob MacGregor.  Given my current work schedule and chasing around after my kids, I haven’t had a chance to see “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” yet.  I’ve heard a lot of negative things about the new movie, so I […]
